Where to stay in Ruidoso

About Ruidoso

Nestled in the mountains of the Sierra Blanca, Ruidoso is a small town renowned for its summer horse racing. Surrounded by national forests and wildlife refuges, it boasts a fascinating open-air museum and is nestled near one of New Mexico’s most popular ski resorts.

Things to do in Ruidoso

Delve into the local history at the Hubbard Museum of the American West where Native American artefacts, old stagecoaches and firearms are on display. Climb aboard a vintage wagon and let the kids try on period clothing. There are also revolving art exhibitions presented throughout the year.

Wander amidst the mid-19th-century buildings of the Fort Stanton State Historic Site, which features a chapel, horse stables and still-functioning US post office. It was established as a military post to control Mescalero Apache Indians and later served as an internment camp for German sailors during World War II.

Snow enthusiasts can hit the trails of Ski Apache, the only resort in New Mexico with its own gondola lift. There are runs to suit all ability levels, including the steep and challenging Capitan and the beginner-friendly Snow Park, as well as the wide, open spaces of the Apache Bowl.

If you’re visiting outside the snow season, head to the walking trails of the Lincoln National Forest to the south of Ruidoso where both elk and bears are often sighted. Wildflowers ignite the trails in spring, with emerald green pine forests, cascading falls and sweeping lookouts among the highlights.
